Education And Research
Education is about improving what is on offer to undergraduates at the university, maximising the opportunities they have, to help them learn about engineering beyond just the mathematics, and hopefully to inspire them. Some of EWB Bristol’s work in this area to date has been the introduction of units designed with sustainability in mind to the engineering curriculum, as well as input on the curriculum as a whole. Recently we have organised a branch library full of inspiring books and not in the fear inspiring way of most of those in Queen’s library!
On the research side of things we get involved in the organisation and selection of undergraduate research projects, bringing meaningful research work to undergraduates. This is in association with the national executive, who have links with many NGO’s and provide projects for students.
With staff throughout the faculty being extremely receptive to ideas, education and research is a great position, giving you a real opportunity to make an impact on how things are run..
